Abducted Zamfara Students regain freedom


The students abducted from Government Day Secondary School, Kaya, Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State, have regained freedom.

This was made known by a post by the Nigerian Television Authority via its verified Facebook page overnight.

On September first, gunmen invaded the school, abducting the students and a teacher. But five of them were released a day after.

Details of their release are yet to be known but the NTA posted two pictures of the freed students.

The development comes after telecommunication networks were shut down in Zamfara as a means to tackle banditry.

Last week, Governor Bello Matawalle said the state government is no longer interested in holding a dialogue with bandits and security forces would flush them out of the state.

The incident is one of the several school abductions that have been reported in the North-Western state and other northern states battling attacks from bandits.

Other states in the region including Katsina and Kaduna, have had their fair share of attacks on schools.
